Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 13% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.4/100, a mean average of 74.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.6.

A gem of an album and the best from INXS. The album was ahead of its time. I remember it on high rotation in the late 80's and is still strong today and beyond. My fav tracks are their non-hits being Guns In The Sky. Mystify and Kick. Brilliant perfect album!

I'm one of the few the enjoy "Listen Like Thieves" more than "Kick". To me, this seems like a re-hash of the LLT formula. As always the Farris Brothers lay down a great foundation, while Hutchence does his thing.

Was playing this cd on the boombox at my overnight grocery-stocking job back in the day. This female coworker asked if it was a greatest hits album....

Really solid album from Aussie legends. Standouts include "Devil Inside", "Guns in the Sky", "Need You Tonight", "New Sensation"and "Never Tear Us Apart". A perfect rhythm/dance-rock album that definitely is a defining late-80s album, blending alternative rock with pop rock, new wave and funk rock.

I liked my brother a little bit more when I realised he really liked INXS. We now begun a long period of sharing and discussing music

Enjoyable album. Kick, INXS's most successful record features some of their finest songs. Devil inside, new sensation, need you tonight, and, mystify, are the best tracks, but there are other good songs in, never tear us apart, wild life, and the title track. Not an essential LP, but a fun enjoyable good time one.

Solid from start to finish, with many memories of my youth. "Need You Tonight" still gets me goin'.
